Olga is a really informative and interesting guide who answered all my questions before I could ask them.

Olga from Odessa Walks was the perfect choice for my five days of thorough research on Odessa. She is one of the most knowledgeable and professional guides I have ever met. Funny, witty, Olga introduced me to a city with so much history with every detail covered. I am writing a Historical Novel on the Russian Revolution, and I needed... More

Unlike a lot of reviewers, I didn't feel like this tour was worth it. Julia is a well meaning person and she tries hard, but as busy as she is, she tends to not be too responsive to emails. But that's all okay and I totally understand. The main issue was with the tour guide who did the tour for... More

Spent a weekend in Odessa, specifically to see the Potemkin steps. Spent the Saturday finding my own way around - the Sunday I took two Odessa Walks tours. I recommend both the food tasting and pub tours - I saw & learnt more of Odessa & Ukraine from brilliant guide Julia than I ever would have on my own. Recommended!

I had the pleasure of taking a four and a half tour of Odessa last weekend with Odessa Walks. Olga organized a very comprehensive tour which included all of the significant sights of the beautiful city of Odessa.
